Artist: PART WILD HORSES MANE ON BOTH SIDES
Title: Aulos Second Reed
Format: LP
Label: Beniffer Editions
Country: Canada
Price: $17.00
Edition of 300. “Aulos Second Reed is a massive development in the transverse music created by Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides. Pascal Nichols and Kelly-Jayne Jones go outside of themselves and become a whole listening unit with a singular pulse. Side A is elegance personified. Using what appears at first to be a two person small Gakaku style setup which leads the listener through occasional tympani playing and a flute response that sounds like it came a hundred years before this time. As each player moves infrequently through their meditation, treated field recordings engage the real time instruments to create an authentic ceremonial experience. The B side remains as patient and expertly conceived but with more focus on collaged components. Sounding like a creaking vessel that does not want to dock. The entire side should be a lock groove. One time pressing of 300, white vinyl with Screenprinted 4 colour jacket and heavy board insert with poetry by the artists.” - Beniffer Editions.

Artist: PART WILD HORSES MANE ON BOTH SIDES
Title: Low Fired Clay Escape
Format: LP
Label: Carnivals
Country: UK
Price: $20.00
"Part Wild Horses Mane on Both Sides is the duo of Kelly Jones and Pascal Nichols. Proclaiming a context far greater than the sum of their instruments, Low Fired Clay Escape is a remarkable record of visceral beauty, stark decay and translucence. One that inhales the smoke of martyrs and advances towards an unknown vocabulary, depicting barren worlds as lost as they are found. Limited to 530 copies and housed in the intricate work of Darren Adcock." - Carnivals

Artist: PART WILD HORSES MANE ON BOTH SIDES
Title: Pike/Portent
Format: LP
Label: Golden Lab
Country: UK
Price: $29.00
"Utterly stunning album from the long-running (and just-married) duo of Kelly Jayne Jones and Pascal Nichols, better known to the world as Part Wild Horses Mane on Both Sides. Theyve moved so far, now, from their Japanese-esque psychedelicised beginnings back in the mid-00s where celebratory flute and drums cascaded into one another like competing tsunamis. Not that what they were doing back then wasnt already brilliant -- in fact, they heralded what felt, at the time, like it might be a whole new era of British drone (a movement that never really came to pass). Its just that, since then, theyve become such masters of their craft that its hard to feel anything but awe upon listening to Pike/Portent. For starters, they do less. In other words, they seem to be as obsessed nowadays with the space between sounds as they do with the sounds themselves. Resonance too. This record sounds like it was recorded in a cave by the ocean, its as simple as that. Secondly, while its still an exploration of the transitory potential of the relationship between the embellished trapezoid drum kit and the naked flute, its just more interrelated, more dynamic, more alive. Jones, in particular, seems to have found the perfect spaces in which to interject complementary and/or jarring sounds (clanking pebbles, pouring water, electronics, etc.). Its almost impossible to consider the result in terms of improvisational music -- its just so considered, so accomplished, so communicative. 140-gram vinyl. Limited edition of 250." - Golden Lab.

Artist: PART WILD HORSES MANE ON BOTH SIDES
Title: Poisson
Format: LP
Label: MIE
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"MIE Music is extremely proud to be reissuing on vinyl one of the finest gems in PART WILD HORSES MANE ON BOTH SIDES astounding back catalog. Poisson was originally released by Rayon Recs in a run of 50 cassettes in 2009, hardly seeing the light of day before it sold out. Droning and looping flute, scattering drums, cyclical patterns and inaudible mutterings. "Percussionist PASCAL NICHOLS and flautist KELLY JONES have minted a profound new form of improvisation that carves spectral shapes from silence and creates free music with a spare orchestral beauty and deep psychedelic atmosphere."-David Keenan, The Wire. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl. Edition of 500 copies." - MIE.

"Work of this quality tends to be the product of a self-contained and selfconcsious tradition, even if a hermetic one. And in this case I fancy I can hear the flowering of a Northern/Midlands sensibilty that stems originally from the A Band, Youngs and Wickham-Smith, and Ashtray Navigations. It is informed by ecstatic jazz but its roots are in pragmatic sonic experimentalism of a determindedly autochthonous kind. You can almost smell the witch trials in this, and I urge you all to catch a handful of mane before these horses gallop over the hill." - Bruce Russell.
